Freezing Rain Could Slicken Monday Morning Commute

Ice and fog expected to worsen road conditions overnight into Monday.

Freezing Rain Could Slicken Monday Morning Commute

 

On the heels of a blizzard that dumped as much as two feet on the area, the National Weather Service is forecasting a period of freezing rain passing over southern Connecticut, including Middlebury and Woodbury, beginning early Monday morning.

The ice and snowfall from this front are not slated to be substantial but could make for a messy commute.

“Ice accumulations are expected to be minimal, only a couple hundredths of an inch,” according to the NWS, “However, this, combined with the recent heavy snowfall could result in slick travel conditions during the morning commute.”

As of the most recent forecasts, there is a 30 percent chance of freezing rain after 3 a.m. Monday, increasing to 100 percent by 9 a.m. Temperatures will warm throughout the day — a high near 42 — but periods of rain and freezing rain are expected through Monday evening.

With more precipitation on the way, before conditions make this more necessary and more difficult.
